Create an itinerary including René Magritte Museum
Housed in the home where he lived for 24 years, René Magritte Museum paints a picture of the life of the Belgian surrealist painter. Rene Magritte, world-renowned for his surrealist painting, lived in this house from 1930 to 1950. Walk the same halls as did the celebrated painter, and see where he created roughly half of his works, including many of his masterpieces. On five floors, the museum displays 200 of Magritte's paintings, including "Scheherazade," "The Return," and "The Empire of Light." See beyond Magritte's paintings as you explore the ground floor, decorated as it would have looked when the artist occupied the home.

  • This is a must-see if visiting Brussels and appreciate art. To be in the home of an artist like Magritte is a privilege. The art, ephemera and artefacts are plentiful and rewarding. The building...

  • Nice, small museum in Magritte's former home. It showcases his life and features recreations of some of his artwork that was lost in WWII. A good complement to the Magritte Museum downtown. The Museum of Abstract Art next door is small but has a nice selection, though Magritte's style is more my type.
  • Very interesting to be able to see so many of his work in one place. I love Magritte and it is a must to visit whilst in Brussels if you do!
